With the launch of ESA’s Solar Orbiter, the international heliophysics community has a new flagship mission to investigate the Sun from close up and from a viewing angle different than the usual view from Earth. While the Solar Orbiter mission covers many different research fields, this presentation will focus on Solar Orbiter’s contribution to the study of solar flares, centered on the hard X-ray telescope STIX. Solar flares are sudden eruptions of the solar atmosphere powered by impulsive releases of magnetic energy that was previously stored in the solar corona. While flares heat the solar atmosphere 50 million degrees, a significant fraction of the released energy goes into the acceleration of particles. Hard X-ray observations are key diagnostics of these hottest flare temperatures and accelerated electrons. I will give an overview of the current status of the field with an outlook of what we hope to achieve during the nominal mission, which will start in fall 2021. Additionally, there will be an insight into future hard X-ray instrumentation with an emphasis on hard X-ray focusing optics.

 

About Sam Krucker


Sam Krucker currently holds a double appointment, shared between the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) and the Space Sciences Laboratory (SSL), University of California, Berkeley, USA. His main scientific interests are in problems of plasma astrophysics, especially heliospheric physics, from an observational and experimental point of view. Over the past two decades, he has been a leading figure in solar flare research, and he is the Principle Investigator of the hard X-ray spectroscopic imager STIX onboard ESA’s Solar Orbiter mission.
